Let’s go back to 1987
Another classic movie from the ’80s that predicts a dark future. The movie starred Kurtwood Smith, Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Miguel Ferrer, Daniel O’Herlihy, Ronny Cox and others. It would spin off sequels, remakes and a line of merchandise a mile long.
Projecting a future as gloomy as one can imagine, Robocop takes place in a futuristic Detroit where a Robocop and a gang of filthy, dirty-looking maggot criminal thugs go head to head. The thugs kill the officer who is then brought back to life as a “Robocop” who seeks out the criminals in the city and in turn, finds out his creator is the biggest criminal of them all.
The movie cost 13.7 million dollars to make and did over 63 million dollars at the box office.
